Hello all! The evening leading up to my birthday was absolutely wonderful and after all that I enjoyed that night, I really feel in my place in Delray Beach. I got home from a long day in the laboratory measuring, weighing and identifying small shrimp, fish, crayfish and beetles drenched in ethanol. A short and very loud thunderstorm had just passed through leaving the sky looking like child smiling just after a temper tantrum. I grabbed my bike and headed to the beach. By the time I got there the sun had already gone down, moonlight was scarce, and the waves were softly crashing on the sand. I crept down to the beach catamarans, past a surf fisherman, and onto the hull of one of the beached catamarans. I laid there and watched the stars which were now peeking around the clouds. The night air was just the right temperature to keep me warm even in a t-shirt and shorts. Perfect. This is love.
After a while I rose from my beach getaway, hopped back on my bike and rode to town. I stopped at the grocery store for some dinner supplies and returned home. With the windows wide open, music playing and some candles flickering, I made this Chicken Scallopine recipe (turned out awesome!), drank from the wine I bought to cook with, and made a dish of gooey, fudgy brownies. What an amazing night! I feel so comfortable and homey.
Feb 3, 2010 was a great day and I can't believe I'm already 27. Thanks to all my amazing friends and family members! I love you all very much and I'm so happy that you are in my life.
